Emil Bise Reaches WSOPC Main Event Throne, WSOP Europe Commences with €1M GTD Event

There is a brand new champion at Rozvadov’s King’s Casino claiming the 12th of the numerous WSOP Circuit Rings and this is Emil Bise coming straight from Switzerland. He managed to reach the throne at the end of the Main Event which brought him some €185,652 for his excellent performance and for outplaying a significant number of rivals for the big cashes.

As tradition dictates, the culmination of every poker congregation comes with the Main Event. This tournament is usually projected to draw the largest crowd throughout its multiple starting flights and the numerous levels of action on the felt. This Main Event featured only two starting flights providing batches of players, but this did not mean that rates of interest were low.

Culminating Event Heats Up King’s Casino

Main Event action brought quite the challenge to all players who managed to survive until the last day of the poker tournament. When all was said and done there were some 565 players registering for participation. A total of 110 of them opted for their mandatory re-entry option, providing them with a second chance to make it all the way to the top.

The two starting flights resulted in a total of 675 entries and an overall prize pool of €961,875. Only the top 71 positions on the official rank list were eligible to a cash payout of the Main Event, meaning that Oleg Mandzjuk was the player bagging the minimum cash payout of the culminating event. The very beginning of the last day of action saw only 20 participants making their way for the last stretch.

Romanian poker player Eduard Nicolae Puia has the fewest chips to his name – only 405,000. This reserved him the 19th position on the official leader board coming with a total of €8,272. The first to leave the run, however, was Jochen Geiselmann from Germany, bagging the same amount of cash. On the opposite end of the rank list was a well-known poker player – Eyal Bensimhon. He came very close to winning the Ring but had to settle for the consolation prize of €116,964 at the end of the day.

Poker Action Never Ends

Throughout his riveting poker career, he had amassed live tournament winnings estimating to more than $89,360 further increased by his most recent winning. The champion, on the other hand, has recently claimed another Main Event cash payout, this time in Italy. Bise participated in the Poker Concept II festival in Saint-Vincent, where he managed to reach the 34th position and bag €2,800 for his performance.

Now that the WSOP Circuit poker festival has come to its end, the next stage is set to commence – World Series of Poker Europe, providing players with a total of 10 WSOP Bracelets. WSOPE Event #1 Colossus featuring the first bracelet starts around 6 p.m. this Tuesday, with a tempting guaranteed prize pool of €1,000,000.

Buy-in for those interested in registering for the first starting flight of this event amounts to €505. There would be eight of those, spanning all the way to Saturday and providing enough opportunities for thousands of players to claim their seats. This festival is set to progress in the upcoming weeks, having its last day of tournaments on 5th November.
